Be still

Herons.  I catch glimpses of them everywhere I go and they've become sort of a mystical bird for me.  I love their patient stillness and awkward gracefulness in flight, the soothing colors and decorative feathers.  It's been a long time since I've painted one and this watercolor became a peaceful meditation for me as I deal with the loss of my beloved grey parrot, Niko.

I'm sorry to hear about your parrot. It is so hard to lose a cherished pet.
Your heron is gorgeous!
